News Weekly, May 24, 2008
Sir,

Some of the articles now circulating from the pens of that endangered species of journalists, who are not mesmerised by the shallow spin from Barack Obama, should dispel any perception that Obama is a shoe-in for the US presidency.

Hillary Clinton's "she would say that" sniping at Barack Obama is not as lethal as the "friendly" fire from Obama's wife Michelle, with her emotional attacks on Americans and America, a country, which has provided her with both wealth and position. Americans are generally very patriotic and would resent her comments.

The damage Barack Obama's former preacher has done to his cause is ongoing, as Rev. Jeremiah Wright tours the United States and is replaced in his church by an Obama friend, who is equally ferocious in his criticism of whites and America.

Collecting 85 per cent or more of the black vote will not be enough to seal the position for Obama. Hispanics now form the largest minority group in America and they are at loggerheads with Afro-Americans, who complain that the Hispanics are taking their jobs.

Now how about President George W. Bush's low approval rating – will that help? Maybe, but the latest poll on the approval rating of Congress, which is now controlled by the Democrats, is 22 per cent.

Frank Bellet,
